So a friend told me I need to learn to just shoot the sh**, ie, talking with no purpose or reason. I think this is stupid. Why would I talk or speak without a reason? I don't waste my words, and only speak when I have something worth listening to. He kept telling me that I should 'just talk' and I couldn't help but laugh at that. Why would I waste my time doing that without a purpose? I could spend that time doing something else.

Do NT's really do this talk with no reason or shoot the sh**, or did I misunderstand?


Yes. Talkign with someone for long periods of time is often a way to be at ease with them in many societies. What I think the problem is, is that we want to talk about different things to what they do.
